Anethum Graveolens 'Mariska' Seeds

This is florists Dill. It has sturdy ridged stems and flowers early making quite a statement in the garden. Anethum has feathery foliage and lots of lovely lime green flower heads for cutting. The flowers are unscented but the foliage is aromatic (aniseed) and is often used to flavour fish, soups, salads and pickles.
